Help needed with getting Dolby digital sound out of polk audio iht 6000 surround
Following is the setup I have and I am unable to get dolby digital sound from my blu-ray player
Sony EX710 LED TV
Sony BDP-S470 Blu-ray player
Polk Audio IHT 6000 surround bar
Bell 6131 satellite receiver
same issue also on Sony NX810 3D LED tv with the same setup
I have contacted sony, bell and polk but could not get it resolved and seems like it might not be possible to get dolby digital from a blu-ray unless i replace iht 6000 or get a/v receiver
So I am hoping I am wrong and someone can help me here without me spending any more money and get it working with the exisiting equipment.
Following is the way the devices are connected.
Satellite receiver to tv via HDMI
TV to IHT 6000 via optical (speaker out on tv)
Blu-ray to TV via HDMI
I do get dolby digital from Satellite receiver on HD channels, I assume SD channels can not relay dolby digital?
I am unable to get dolby digital from my blu-ray - on iht6000 receiver the light remains blue which means PCM or analogue source received
I am expecting it to be green as if iht6000 shows steady green it means Dolby digital source received and is being decoded.
I have tried playing with the settings on the tv and the blu-ray player but with no luck.
Anybody has a iht 6000 surroundbar hooked up to their blu-ray player via their tv and able to get dolby digital?
Please share your setup(settings) if got it working or if someone has any other ideas that I can try to get dolby digital sound.
Thanks in advance.
